SOIL – Completing the Carbon Jigsaw (Soil Carbon Report)

This Soil Carbon Report, ‘Soil – completing the carbon jigsaw’ combines the key findings from the Kingshay Soil Organic Carbon Project, alongside other research and knowledge. The aim of the project was to better understand the current soil organic carbon (SOC) levels of grassland soils and gain a better knowledge of carbon sequestration and how management practices on farm may influence carbon levels.

It is intended to be a practical guide for farmers who want to improve or maintain soil organic carbon in their grassland soils.

This report will help farmers to understand how they can play their part in climate change mitigation whilst improving the health of their soil, having a positive impact on their profitability.

Alongside this document we have added new testing to our analysis suite – Analysing your soils using our new service ‘CarbonCheck Soil Analysis with Textural Classification’ will not only allow you to see how much carbon you are sequestering, tonnes per ha. But with the %Clay results you can calculate your SOC to Clay ratio to classify your soil C as ‘very good’, ‘good’, ‘moderate’ or ‘degraded’ – this will help you to make management decisions when it comes to Carbon in your soils.
